The Asclepieion is an ancient centre of medicine situated 4 kilometers southeast of the city of Kos, after the village of Platani. It was built in the first half of the 3rd century B.C. to honor Asclepius, the god of health and medicine, after the death of Hippocrates, the famous ancient Greek physician. The doctors of this hospital were also priests, and a shrine was also available for those who wanted to pray. The Asclepieion is located on the top of a verdant hill, which offers a great view of the city of Kos and its suburbs. Nowadays, tourists enjoy the pleasant and serene atmosphere of the location, just as the patients did in the centuries gone by.

Pasha Makarouna

The pasha makarouna is one of Kos's intensly delicious treats, which is unfortunately no longer served in all restaurants and taverns of the island, but it is a treat that you ought to definitely try out whenever you find it. It is a food item prepared by the landladies of Kos, and required particular skill and effort, because it involved kneading and stretching a very thin phyllo sheet using the "pitaridoxylo" - the island's version of a rolling pin. The phyllo sheet was afterwards placed on a tray and filled with ground meat and dry mizithra cheese, alternately with each layer of phyllo, until reaching the final layer, which was poured over with broth or milk.
